Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

A Good Proverb for America

"Bis interimitur qui suis armis perit,"

said Publilius Syrus in the last century before the birth of Our Lord. We as a nation would do well to listen to it as we sell bombs and bombers and God-knows-what-else to anybody who will buy them. How many of our enemies have we armed? Both Saddam Hussein and the Taliban certainly, and maybe Chavez's army. Did we think we could buy their love by arming them to kill our mutual enemies?

"He is slain twice who by his own weapons perishes."
